Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Three-year starter, although his senior year was cut short due to injury. Good ability and effort in pursuit. Good athlete who can change directions well and displays good instincts and intelligence. Solid on-field leader.

WEAKNESSES: Tick undersized. Must improve consistency. Marginal coverage skills. Best season came as a sophomore in 2011. Durability concerns.

Player Overview

Nelson flew under the radar after suffering a season-ending torn pec against TCU in October. He finished the year with 27 yackles, while also returning an interception for a touchdown.

He leaves Norman with 155 career tackles, an interception and eight passes defended.

Not invited to the Scouting Combine, he posted a 4.60-second 40-yard dash and 23 reps on the 225-pound bench press at his pro day to go along with a 33-inch vertical jump.
